BOSTON, MA—The warmer spring weather means more outdoor activities in the Boston area. Kim Foley MacKinnon, author of 100 Things to Do in Boston Before You Die, 2nd Edition, has put together the definitive Boston bucket list, and it’s full of fun things to do in the coming months. Below are some suggested spring activities straight from the book itself:

 

  • A trip to Sullivan’s at Castle Island is a Boston rite of spring. The food stand has been serving up hot dogs, burgers, fries, and ice cream as well as seafood favorites since 1951.          

 

  • Check out the old and new at Haymarket, where vendors loudly extol the virtues of their fresh fruits and vegetables to hordes of locals.      

     

  • Cheer on the runners at the Boston Marathon, one of the most prestigious marathons in the world.        

 

  • Get artsy at the SoWa Open Market, where more than 175 local artists, farmers, food trucks, brewers, and musician gather in one sprawling location.
